What to Plant in August

We’re starting to countdown the days to Autumn when the new planting season truly begins! As the weather gets breezier, and produce begins to sprout, harvesting your fruits and vegetables is the next step. But don’t forget about planting, there are still a lot of things you can get into the ground in August…

Strawberries

Synonymous with British summertime, Strawberries are a real summer treat! Often paired with cream and sunshine, our range of Strawberry plants will crop at various times over the summer months. Not only are they disease resistant, but are all reliable cropping varieties. You could even try our unusual white, Pineapple tasting ‘Pineberry’!

Crocus

Crocus corms are a real standout in the garden! Creating the most striking and effective displays in the border, flower bed, rockeries or even planted as part of an actual lawn. They may be small but when planted in moderately fertile, well drained soil they can make a real impact in the garden!

Indoor Hyacinth

Flowering from as early as December, our fragrant prepared hyacinth bulbs are suitable for growing in pots and containers. Sized at 16/18cm, and planted at approximately 10cm deep, these beautiful blooms will produce large, bell-like tightly packed flower heads that will brighten up your home during the cold winter months.

Alliums

Big, bold and stunning, Alliums are a very distinctive late spring and early summer flowering bulb. Easy to grow and the standout of the garden, when planted in beds, borders or rock gardens. Alliums compliment each and every garden and when planted in fertile, well drained soil, they have a chance of becoming the must have impact plant for spring and summer.
